Customer Question
It feels like someone driving...
It feels like someone driving a needle into the back of the head of my penis.II just had a cat scan done and a urinalysis by a urologist and he said everything was okay however, I still have this pain in my penis it's a constant pain just enough to aggravate the hell out of me. If I put a clamp on the base of my penis and squeeze the skin together the pain subsides quite substantially. Please Dr tell me what you think is wrong with me.
JA: How long have you been dealing with the issue? Is this your first time reaching out for information about it?
Customer: It's been going on on and off for a couple of years and I've been to a couple of doctors no one can find out what's wrong with me.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: Not that I know of.

It sounds like you migh have pudendal neuritis. Have you discussed this with your doctor? Pudendal neuritis is an unusual problem with the pudendal nerve that can affect both men and women. The pudendal nerve runs through your pelvic region, including your genitals. The condition is also known as pudendal neuropathy, pudendal nerve entrapment, cyclist's syndrome, pudendal canal syndrome, or Alcock's syndrome. The cause of PN is unclear. The pudendal nerve can be compressed or entrapped. Numerous potential nerve compression zones exist.

Doctor: Dr. Bob, Medical Doctor replied 1 year ago

MRI allows for PN to be classified, based on the entrapment site: type I, in the sciatic notch; type II, the ischial spine and sacrosciatic ligament; type IIIa, the obturator internus muscle; type IIIb, the obturator internus and piriformis muscles, and type IV, the distal branches of the pudendal nerve. Normal imaging findings do not exclude a diagnosis of PN.

Does this require surgery to fix?
Doctor: Dr. Bob, Medical Doctor replied 1 year ago

Management includes the treatment of neuropathic pain (with gabapentin, pregabalin, duloxetine, amitriptyline), percutaneous posterior tibial nerve stimulation, physiotherapy, osteopathy and short-term psychotherapy. The effect of anesthetic infiltration of the pudendal nerve is limited. In refractory forms, transgluteal decompression of the pudendal nerve has been effective. In those where surgery has been ineffective, an implantable neurostimulator at the level of the terminal cone can be proposed.

No my doctor did not catch that he did not do a MRI. This condition will not kill me will it?
Customer reply replied 1 year ago
Dr. Bob, thank you very much for your time and you have a wonderful day.
Doctor: Dr. Bob, Medical Doctor replied 1 year ago

PN greatly affects quality of life, but has no effect on life expectancy.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
